Remember the night we broke the window in this old house? This is what I wished for.

He saw how it saved my life.

When you handle yourself, use your head; when you handle others, use your heart.

That's 14 people who've saved my life and my son's life. That was a real gift. ... When you give blood, you give the gift of life.

I've been involved with blood donation since the 1980s because there is a critical need.

What we look for in the school is unrealized potential.

Bread that this house may never know hunger, salt that life may always have flavor.

The Fall Guy.

Why can't (people) open their hearts up and look at the need for blood?
